|Blast freezers unlike plate
freezers rely on the extraction of heat from their product without
the benefit of a metal freezer pan. Plate freezers pull the heat
through the pan to create their freezer times and they must first
freeze the pans, before they can freeze the fish. Blast freezers
on the other hand work on the wind chill principle at 28 miles per
hour, within compartment blast freezers.
Blaster freezers as a group really do not want metal pans slowing
down their process. Metal freezer pans are a glut on energy in
a blast freezer environment and offer much slower freeze times
compared to Kofal® blast freezer pans.
Fish processing plants that are land-based or sea-based, have
long known that a high turnover of fish being frozen in-and-out
of the freezer is crucial. An extra hour or two in the blast freezer
is slowing down production, and doesn’t make an efficient
fish processing plant. When you compare other fish processing equipment
- Kofal® blast freezer pans - to metal freezer pans, the cost per
pan is roughly one half the price of metal freezer pans. (This
is not to mention a decrease in productivity and a waste in energy
costs that metal freezer pans incur.) So not only are you getting
much faster freezer times, you are also getting longer lasting
freezer pans. You get this all at half the investment of metal
freezer pans that have a life expectancy of maybe three years,
compared to ten years plus, with Kofal® plastic freezer pans.
If you’re in charge of the purchasing of fish processing
equipment, you owe it to yourself to test Kofal® freezer pans in
a day-in-day-out fish processing plant. The choice is clear - after
your tests, we believe that you will conclude that metal freezer
pans will be obsolete pieces of fish processing equipment and have
no use in processing frozen fish!
